Tennis ball tail support

  To steady an item that is pretty well already finished and you need a ‘soft touch’ steady, try using a tennis ball between your tail center and the work piece. You probably can’t use it to play your next tennis game because it may require putting a hole in it to mount it on the tail center.  

This tip comes from Lyle Jamieson and his YouTube video on turning a natural edge bowl. Click this link to watch on YouTube.
